PROPOSAL DESCRIPTION
Cannabis Genomic Blockchains driving DASH awareness in the Cannabis space.

Phase I. Migration of Kannapedia.net to the DASH blockchain and promotion of DASH at CannMed 2018.

Tl;Dr
There are many scam coins being introduced into the Cannabis space driving apprehension and distrust. Broad scale adoption of crypto in cannabis requires the attention of the Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) in the field and continued exposure through high traffic Cannabis credibility vectors. Kannapedia.net, Medicinal Genomics and CannMed represent a network of opinion leaders that can integrate these KOLs to DASH, Alt36 and other crypto networks.

To drive credible DASH adoption we propose (100 DASH)
1) Port the blockchained cannabis genomic registry of Kannapedia.net over to the DASH blockchain and integrate DASH payments for this service.
2) Get DASH exposure to the premier Scientific conference on Cannabis – CannMed 2018


How we build trust in the Cannabis markets.
Medicinal Genomics is an entrepreneurial cannabis genomics company. We are a 15 person start-up best known for first sequencing the cannabis genome and open sourcing its genome as a scientific charity to the world. Our leading products are cannabis genetic tests that utilize PCR and Next Generation sequencing to


· Quantitate regulated microbial risks on cannabis (PathogINDICAtor). These tests are required by most Jurisdictions.
· Decentralized Cannabis Pathogen detection platforms (youPCR). This is a voluntary market emerging due to a lack of crop insurance in cannabis.
· Cannabis genomic tests for directed breeding and blockchain notarization (StrainSEEK). This is a voluntary market hacking the patent system.

As more jurisdictions legalize, our expertise in cannabis safety testing, our peer reviewed publication frequency and our conference organization of CannMed is resulting in rapid adoption of our cannabis microbial tests in over 15 states and strong reputational trust within the cannabis medical community.

Our decentralized point of grow genetic testing tools are gaining traction in 4 of Canada’s largest LPs (Limited Producers) and many other grows throughout the US.

youPCR- https://www.medicinalgenomics.com/youpcr-platform/

We are also the largest provider of cannabis genomics tests (StrainSEEK). These tests are gaining rapid traction as growers scramble to publically register their genetics on the BTC blockchain to protect against cannabis patent trolls. This work was showcased at D10E 2016, the Texas Bitcoin Conference in 2017 and highlighted in many media outlets throughout the cannabis and blockchain space (Let’s Talk Bitcoin, Bitcoins and Gravy, The Crypto Show, The Tatiana Show etc…).


Some jurisdictions are discussing mandating DNA fingerprinting of mother plants to enhance the seed to sale tracking system while IBM is publishing whitepapers encouraging the cannabis industry to adopt blockchains. We have also published our own whitepaper on the importance of genomic information in any Cannabis Blockchain and the enhanced utility delivered with DNA fingerprints. A barcoding system based on genetics offers maximal scientific utility to the grower and user community compared to the present RFID tag via arbitrary number barcoding systems.

https://mega.nz/#!MRh0DDpT!tpaQ0P0NFEtP1bjHQhjNybjoiJe7qNL8h_mejrz4A8A

We are in discussions with various regulatory agencies in Puerto Rico, California, and Rhode Island about pricing for such a system and believe these discussions require we rethink the Bitcoin blockchains expensive and slow notary service.

In addition to these “picks and shovels” products for the cannabis industry, we also run the most prestigious medical cannabis conference (CannMed) at Harvard Medical School every year. Dr. Raphael Mechoulam is an advisor for the conference and is the scientific founder of the field of cannabinoid sciences. We encourage everyone to see the documentary on this landmark scientific discovery below.


The conference draws the most reputable names in the field from Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, Dr. Ethan Russo, Dr. Bonni Goldstein, Dr. Dustin Sulak, Dr. Orrin Divinsky, Dr. Alexandros Makryannis, Dr. Jonathan Page, Lyn Ulbricht and many more.

http://www.cannmedevents.com


CannMed generates public videos of each speaker. These have generated significant media attention from the Wall Street Journal, VICE, PBS and others sources. This has created a strong out reach to the NFL community regarding cannabinoids, CTE research and opiate abuse.

http://www.cannmedevents.com/nfl-panel/
https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/medical-marijuana-research-comes-shadows


As a result, CannMed was featured in the VICE series Chasing Strains which has gathered over 330K views since May 2017. Medicinal Genomics was also recently featured in the VICE series Weediquette for our work debunking the rejection of a cannabis patient from the Maine organ transplant list.


The Veteran community has also teamed up with CannMed for consistency in PTSD therapy. The Veterans for Cannabis uses Kannapedia.net as a tool to register strains that are working for veterans with PTSD.

The CannMed conference is 30% Physician attended and offers 22.5 Continuing Medicinal Education (CME) credits in the field of cannabinoid therapy. To accommodate the rapid growth of the conference we are moving the event to UCLA Medical School for the 2018 California legalization. We are expecting over 1500 attendees, 40-50 Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) speakers, and 30 exhibitors from the Cannabis field and we are organizing a Crypto track to get these KOLs familiar with cryptocurrency. We believe capturing the mindshare of the KOLs in the field is critical for cryptocurrency adoption in the cannabis industry.

Cryptocurrency is also changing the way science is being funded and reviewed. Excellent examples of this are the $1M crypto-funding of MAPS for politically controversial yet scientifically promising research on psychedelic compounds. RAIDreviews.org made a splash this year by organizing a crypto-bounty peer review for the Kratom Genome Project thus fundamentally dis-intermediated the copyright industry and the broken journal driven peer review system. The Psilocybe Cubensis Genome Project was placed on IPFS/Alexandria.io with the goal to fund FreeRoss.org and MAPS. It is clear scientists are demanding neutral paths for funding and publishing scientific work on prohibited forms of intellectual pursuit. DASH should be at the forefront of crypto-science to drive credibility, truth and adoption rate onto their DASH Drive platform.

Goals
We propose a project to get DASH exposure with the KOLs in the cannabis field and to convert our Kannapedia.net Cannabis proof of existence market to the DASH network while providing DASH high visibility on this early but growing website. We also propose to adopt DASH as a payment option for customers utilizing this service. Concurrent to these efforts we propose a DASH sponsorship package and a DASH Partnership status to the CannMed 2018 conference at UCLA Medical School.

Budget Details
Kannapedia.net migration and DASH adoption (15 DASH).

· 5 DASH/month. 3 months to complete but for simplicity in payouts we will amortize this payout with the 10 month cycle being used for the rest of the promotional activities.
1 FTE capable of
· Integrating a Blockcypher API for DASH notarization. Test and confirm with live genomic samples for showcasing at CannMed 2018.
· DASH payment integration with Bitcoin Transaction Coordinator and BitPay. This approach is compliant with our backend Netsuite ERP system and Bioinformatics pipeline handling the sequencing data storage. Tools from Bitcore.io may assist in cross platform integration. Electrum wallet or Copay wallets to be integrated and security tested.
· Wordpress website updates to include DASH logos and links on every page in Kannapedia.net

CannMed 2018 UCLA Medical School, Diamond Sponsorship level ($35K value, 35 DASH in total. 3.5 DASH monthly)

DIAMOND SPONSOR
· Conference spec sheet- https://mega.nz/#!4EwUibIa!lgOw3qRmmTuciIfHuoaNTTx6ulE7zsJfTTh6bjDZXy8

· A personal communication with Danny Sessoms from the Crypto Show was supportive of this effort. He volunteered to man any DASH related booth at CannMed and did not feel DASH compensation was warranted as he planned on attending the event anyway. If he allows, I will personally donate DASH to support his travel to CannMed and potentially host a CryptoShow at the event.
· Matt McKibbin of DecentraNet has expressed an interest to chair the track.

CannMed 2018 UCLA Medical School, Partner: Promotional activity until October 2018. (50 DASH in total: 5 DASH per month)

5 DASH to support the application fee
1.5 DASH per month for Kannapedia conversion
3.5 DASH per month for Diamond Sponsorship
5 DASH per month for CannMed Partnership status.
Total DASH including application fee reimbursement:105 or 10/Month

Skin in the game
Medicinal Genomics will be fronting over $1.2M for this conference. We have skin in the game and welcome Partners from the crypto space. We recently completed a $5M over subscribed convertible debt offering. We are committed, small, but have a keen eye for win-win relationships.

This proposal is the first part of a series of Phased proposals.
We envision a Phase II proposal that would create a seed to sale genomics driven blockchain on the DASH network. Given the above proposal is funded and successful we believe Phase II will mature as DASH Drive and Evolution mature.

Conclusions
With Medicinal Genomics focus on public charity science, safety testing and scientific authenticity in the Cannabis space, we believe we offer credibility to patients, physicians and regulators. This is an excellent platform to drive DASH awareness into the Cannabis space and also transplants a popular cannabis blockchain project onto the DASH network.

I think what you are going for is a no-brainier. Title on this post could be better, people could scan right by it.

I'd suggest just doing a single month proposal since its a not that much these days. That way you can just convert and pay for the expenses. If you hold the funds for a long time then there should probably be a plan for what you would do if the value increases etc. October is far away.

Thank you for the feedback!
Will make the monthly request more clear and clean up the title.

Very helpful

So I just lowered a lot of the DASH due its price rise and corrected a typo on $35K sponsorship being 3.5 DASH. That would be 3.5 DASH per month at $1000/DASH but now DASH is $1400 and so put this at 3 DASH per month. You raise a good point on hedging volatility. If DASH crashes, the Conference would have effectively given up its lead sponsorship and it could jeopardize the event. I think monthly is still the right play here however as we want the organizers of the meeting to be motivated to continue to push the DASH name and help buoy the price. Lump sums loose this incentive.

Well that was a waste of time:) massive price swings is making this fun to lock in on a budget.
Good time to pick up 5 more DASH:)

Sorry if the info I gave you is obsolete, I'm not familiar with the process. I will try to reach on discord if somebody can help. I think the easiest way is https://www.dashcentral.org
Not obsolete. Helpful video as it made me realize her webpage was different than what I was using and got some help from babygirrafe. Pointed me to the site above. The tricky part is that my 5 DASH transaction went through but the process stalled out before the Submit function completed. I wouldn't point anyone to this site https://www.dashcentral.org/budget/create

As it hangs and is non-responsive for many parts of the submission process. Still waiting on the proposal to show up on the proposal board? Thank you for your help

Dashcentral was good the last time I used it, not sure about the other site you posted.

As for your proposal, I just skimmed it but what I saw I really liked and would vote for. I need to go back and look at your numbers and plan more carefully but I love the idea.

Thank you for the feedback! The proposal is in some form of DASH purgatory. It appears to have taken the 5 DASH, provided a Proposal ID but never made it to the Proposal board. With the holidays it is unlikely to get sorted out in time for a vote but if you know of anyone who can sort out these transaction hashes, I would love to learn more about them. My alternatives are to toss another 5 DASH down and repeat but that can be an expensive game of debugging.

This is the gobject submit

990f5c4b69ac4100aaddf7062961df2e699e1d8c9b3b9b8d72fc7f22d7c965b9

Im wondering if there is a long time gap between the gobject prepare and gobject submit if these get hung up? If I attempt a resubmit based on the same input (without spending another 5 DASH), I get the same <data-hex> but the <time> field changes and thus I suspect I cant use the TrX ID from the gobject prepare?

I see the transaction on the DASH blockchain but I suspect something is invalid for the Proposal board to pick it up?

Dashcentral is back up and working well.
For others that read this- see below for a FAQ That explains this gobject submit process and makes it less stressful once your 5 DASH leave your hands. RTFM still applies;)
